Cancels ‘Classic Weekend’

COOPERSTOWN – The annual Hall of Fame Classic weekend at the Baseball Hall of Fame has been cancelled, Jon Shestakofsky, Communications VP, announced moments ago.

“This precautionary measure is being implemented in accordance with recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and government officials to limit opportunities for large gatherings and the further spread of the COVID-19 virus,”Shestakofsky wrote in a statement.

The weekend – originally scheduled for May 22-24 – features the Legends game, where Hall of Famers and MLB players play a seven-inning game at Doubleday Field, as well as the BASE Race 5K and the “Night at the Museum” program.

According to the Hall, all tickets for all Classic events will be refunded.

    I think that this event should be postponed but not cancelled. There is plenty of time available during the summer months to have this weekend. The steps our government are taking to get this virus under control quickly and how we are as a country are uniting together to follow all of the measures outlined to me seems that a solution will be found soon. Our towns throughout this area need this event to bring much needed revenue to help our small towns survive.

    Poor Larry Walker. Is he ever going to be inducted into the Hall Fame! Already waited 10 years. He better get the due he deserves eventually. Please just say postponed until further notice. Don’t say cancelled permanently.

    Disappointed. I had my favorite room at the Lake Front Hotel reserved for the weekend.
